Is it "safe"? Safety is a term that is subjective, in that what I think is safe, you might not, and my mother might have yet another opinion.

However, what I can share with you are the facts, the statistics, that might help you determine whether in your opinion it is "safe". Stats like

- how many "sex offenders" are in the area
- how many sexual assaults there have been
- how many car or home thefts
- etc...

My research (which may not be 100% accurate) revealed the following within 1/2 mile of Azure In the last 4 months

- 4 home or business thefts
- 1 car theft
- 1 sex offender living in the area
- 1 sex offense

I'd recommend contacting the local P.D. and see if anyone there will share with you more facts.

If you are looking for a Realtor that represents you who deals with facts vs. opinions, who is smart, trustworthy and caring. Call me.

From a traffic point of view, it's very safe. Azure Street is a quiet street.

From a crime point of view, you should do a combination of checking the crime mapping sites and driving over there at different times of night to observe for yourself.

Here's a good crime map:
http://spotcrime.com/ca/sunnyvale
Hover your cursor over the icons to see the date, time, and nature of each incident.

This crime site ranks the Sunnyvale neighborhoods in terms of safety, but the downside is they ask you to "subscribe" to get more detailed information:

Hi a,

This is a very common question right up there with "How good is" and "Where is the” School.

Realtors® looking to minimize legal exposure to the Federal "anti-steering" Law do not comment on "crime & safety"; however, we can direct you to information sources. In this regard, my favorite site is http://www.crimereports.com

Note: Once you enter a property address go to the "Incident Layers" tab to select what type of information is important to you. Next, choose the duration of time you want to look at under "Date Range" (now limited to a 6-month view).

You can also try these alternate sites:

As far as vetting Schools I suggest you take a peek at http://www.SchoolAndHousing.com
Based on property address, this site provides attendance area schools (Public, Private and Daycares) along with useful statistics and other information about each school.

Before making an offer you should call the School District to CONFIRM the schools the property will feed to!

For anyone to give an opinion on the safety of any specific street, neighborhood or area would be very unwise. The terrible tragedy in Connecticut happened in a neighborhood and in a school that most people would have deemed “safe”.

I used to live in Sunnyvale and I do not recall any area in the city that I would consider unsafe. BUT…that is no guarantee that something bad could happen in any given location.

There are various websites that will report crime statistics.

Drive the neighborhood and make your own determination of what it looks like.
